WIND DRIVEN EMBERS and firebrands blown ahead of the fire that land in areas that catch or trap them. Heat traps include roof valleys & gutters, open eaves, sofits, overhands, or under decks and balconies.
RADIANT HEAT generally from flammable vegetation or adjacent burning homes that are too close to your home.
DIRECT FLAME CONTACT from flammable native or urban landscaping, attached wood fences and accumulation or storage of flammable materials against the house or under decks.
Note that 50% of the houses with wood roofs and less than 30 feet of vegetation clearance were destroyed by wildfire. But less than 1% of the homes with fire resistant roofs and 100 feet of clearance were destroyed.
